XXCLONE Free
Move your data to a new hard drive with XXCLONE

Whether you want to safeguard your valuable files by backing it up, or you are installing a new hard drive and need to migrate data from the old one, XXCLONE is on hand to help you out. This free program makes it possible to create an exact replica of the contents of one hard drive on another. While this is something that could be done manually, having something to help you out makes things a great deal quicker and easier.

You may have decided that you need a larger hard drive, or you may have decided to make the switch from a SATA drive to an SSD. Moving all of your files can be a serious pain, but XXCLONE can eliminate some of the frustration. Using the app helps to avoid the need to check that all of your files have copied as you can rest safe in the knowledge that an exact replicate is being created for you and you can then make that drive bootable.

We have said that the program could be used for data migration or backing up purposes, but there is one problem if you decide to use it for backups. While it is possible to schedule a backup to be run and updated in the future and on a regular basis, the process of getting this set up is a convoluted mess involving setting up batch files which is off-putting to the extent that many people simply won’t bother – which negates the benefits of creating a backup.

There are also Home and Pro versions of the app available for $40 and $60 per year. These include important additional features such as the ability to create incremental backup and faster ‘hyper’ backups. While these are certainly not essential for backing up your data, they do make things a great deal faster and easier. For basic jobs, however, the free version will suffice.

Verdict:

It gets the job done, but XXCLONE is a little basic and there are better free tools out there.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.19.11

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.19.11 

• You can now reply to a group message privately in your 1:1 chat. Tap and hold a message in a group chat and select "More", then "Reply Privately".
• When editing a photo or video, you can tap the smiley icon to add stickers. 
• From the Status tab, you can now 3D touch to preview a contact's status.
